I have a lot of charms....and it recently occured to me that I didn't know how many. So I pulled them all out, and counted them up.....I love looking at these charms, especially the older ones. The originals are not coated in resin, and they are scuffed up. I've learned so much about making jewelry since that first collection.
I wore my first charm necklace every single day for a year before I received enough questions and compliments to start making some to sell in my Etsy shop. I never thought I would make enough charms to do it as a full time job! I don't wear that first necklace much anymore, because it isn't as sturdy as the ones I make now, and I don't want to damage it.
Charms bring me a lot of luck....I need to start designing a new necklace for my collection.
